It's a pretty basic formula. If the current snow water equivalent averages out to a 9 for those SNOTEL sites, you're looking at a typical commercial season- roughly 4 weeks of good raftable flows, at least 1,000 CFS. That being said, a lot depends on the runoff rate, overnight temperatures at higher elevations, and so on. There hasn't been a decent season for the last few years now. Commercial trips will scrape rafts down to 400 CFS, and then run duckies, all day trips. Just heard that a company is already setting up shop for a Salt season, but it looks super marginal right now.
